Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is celebrating Columbus Day a week early this year. All of the New York and New Jersey locations, including the one at 420 Northern Blvd. in Great Neck, will donate 20 percent of dine-in and takeout sales on Monday, Oct. 3, to the Columbus Citizens Foundation Scholarship Program in support of education for Italian-American students.
The Columbus Citizens Foundation is a nonprofit organization in New York City committed to fostering an appreciation of Italian-American heritage and achievement. The organization’s scholarship program provides more than $2.2 million annually to deserving Italian-American elementary, high school, college and graduate students.

“Christopher Columbus’ legacy has inspired millions of people to believe that anything is possible,” said Anthony Bruno, founder and CEO of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. “We are excited to hold this event in the explorer’s honor and support the next generation of Italian-Americans.”
